Thanks for posting your question ,My name isXXXXX will try to help you today.
Generally this error codes, indicate problem with the print head, because it seems the contacts on the print head are damaged and you have to replace the print head to resolve the issue, but before that you can follow the steps below to remove the print head, then clean the copper contacts on them with a cotton swab dampened in distilled water until they are clean, after drying them reseat the print head and check the issue. If the problem persist, then replace the print head to resolve the issue.
Please don't think, that replacing the print head and replacing the whole printer is same or the cost will be some, because some customer got confused and buy a whole new printer, where just replacing the print head can solve the problem,this only applies, if the problem does not get solve after cleaning the contacts.
I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand and I wish to get a positive rating for my time and effort and please do not give me a negative rating for a hardware fault of the printer.
Step one: Remove, clean, and reinstall the printhead
[ol]Make sure that the product is turned on.Open the access door.Remove all the cartridges and place them on a piece of paper with the ink opening pointing up.
NOTE:Do not leave the cartridge outside of the product longer than 30 minutes. This could result in damage to both the product and the ink cartridges.Figure 1: Remove ink cartridges
Lift the latch handle on the print carriage until it stops.Figure 2: Lift the latch handle
Remove the printhead by lifting it straight up.Figure 3: Remove printhead
Clean the printhead.There are three areas of the printhead to clean: the plastic ramps on both sides of the ink nozzles, the edge between the nozzles, and the electrical contacts.Figure 4: Three areas to clean
1 - Plastic ramps on the sides of the nozzles2 - Edge between nozzles and contacts3 - Electrical contacts
CAUTION:Do not touch the nozzles. Do not touch the electrical contact areas with your fingers. Tough the electrical contact areas only with cleaning materials.To clean the printhead, follow these steps:[ol]Gather cleaning materials:Use clean, lint-free cloth or paper. Coffee filters and eye-glass cleaning cloth work well. Use distilled or bottled water.Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth and wipe the electrical contact area from the bottom to the top. Do not go past the edge between the nozzles and the electrical contacts. Clean until no new ink shows on the cloth.Figure 5: Cleaning contacts
Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe any accumulated ink and debris from the edge between the nozzles and the contacts.Figure 6: Cleaning edge
Use a fresh, lightly dampened, lint-free cloth to wipe the plastic ramps on both sides of the nozzles. Wipe away from the nozzles.Figure 7: Cleaning ramps
Wipe the previously cleaned areas dry with a dry lint-free cloth before proceeding to the next step.[/ol]Clean the electrical contacts inside the product:[ol]Lightly dampen a clean, lint-free cloth with bottled or distilled water. Clean the electrical contacts in the product by wiping with the cloth from top to bottom. Use as many fresh, clean cloths as necessary. Clean until no ink shows on the cloth.Figure 8: Clean contacts inside product
Wipe the area dry with a dry lint-free cloth before proceeding to the next step.[/ol]Make sure the latch handle is up, and then reinsert the printhead.Figure 9: Reinsert the printhead
Carefully lower the latch handle.
NOTE:Make sure you lower the latch handle before reinserting the ink cartridges. Leaving the latch handle raised can result in incorrectly seated ink cartridges and problems printing. The latch must remain down to correctly install the cartridges.Figure 10: Lower the latch handle
